Dear [Decision Maker],
As a constituent and a volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, I'm asking you to prioritize funding for cancer research and prevention programs at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) cancer programs.COVID-19 is the biggest health challenge the world is facing right now. But even in a pandemic, Americans are being diagnosed with cancer. Congress must therefore provide funding to ensure that cancer research and clinical trials impacted by COVID-19 are restarted so we do not lose any progress in the fight against cancer. Congress must also ensure that we have long-term, sustained funding increases for cancer research and prevention in the regular budget process.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
